In this unique strategy game you take on the character of John Alexander and experience apocalyptic war first hand. The objective of the game is to get to the top of the hierarchy of command and save the world. The game is split into two levels - strategic and tactical. In the strategic part, you decide on the most suitable territory for attack, the division of financial resources, the composition and organisation of the army, and the direction of research. In the tactical part the actual battle within each territory takes place. During the battle, you have to allocate a specific number of action points per unit, for moving, attacking or other special activities.
As you are promoted to higher ranks your share of responsibility becomes bigger. You will find yourself leading troops, modern tank divisions, air squadrons, heavy artillery and elite infantry brigade, across grassy plains and hot deserts, fighting to save the world. You will face the might of bloodthirsty Orcs, merciless elves and ranks of Skeletal Warriors. It's a game of skill and precision thinking.
